The Future of Engagement
As design technology makes computing systems more powerful and useful, we find ourselves more dazzled by its pixie-dust sparkle. We are addicted to digital and it keeps getting better. The problem is, we love it when people give us things we enjoy, but enjoyment is a brain-circuit that's easy and profitable to hack.
What is the best way to design behaviors, interactions and interface technology that yields routines that are socially and psychologically healthy?
Our work in this area explores the implications of computer-augmented experiences on the future of engagement. Designed one way, the world is yours to command and to love. Designed another, it's a bad habit.
